Rising Hope Foundation
As a truck driver, Leckie saw firsthand the “modern-day slavery” that was happening around the country. Seeing young girls regularly being driven to truck stops and forced to go around and knock on driver’s doors was a real awakening. In January 2013, David and his wife, Vicki, began the process of setting up a non-profit organization to offer restoration and healing to victims of human trafficking. With prayers and support from friends and contributors, they work to make a real difference in the lives of young women enslaved by human trafficking.
